Why Casedo for mooting?

Casedo is a simple workspace that brings together all your documents, so you can easily switch between them, highlight vital information, make notes and create links between files, all on one platform. It’s ideal for mooting in two ways.

1. Build your argument by bringing together all the research, law and documents pertinent to the case into a single workspace.

2. As you build your argument you will create a moot-ready bundle, organised in a way that suits you.

Build your argument

Time now to bring everything you need together into Casedo. Drag and drop in Word and PDF files and organise them in folders and subfolders. You can reorganise them as often as you want before submission. Highlight, bookmark and comment on the relevant sections and build links between documents for simple navigation during the moot itself. Paginate with inserts, add a Table of Contents with a single click.

Step 7

Submit your Casefile and your Skeleton

Now you’ve built your argument in Casedo and completed your skeleton separately, upload both files here. Make sure that your Casefile is paginated correctly  and remember don’t add or remove documents to your copy of the Casefile once it has been submitted, otherwise you risk having a bundle paginated differently from the judge’s copy.

Before uploading your submission, you need to name the Casefile correctly, see the form opposite for details. If you need more help, take a look at this article.
